Abstract

Pragmatistic conception of logic is virtually that of Hintikka's game-theoretic semantics (GTS), including the idea of players ``feigned in our make-believe''. Peirce was interested in logic as a theory of normative, conventional, habitual and strategic action. Later Grice erected his theory of conversation on Peircean background. But cooperation is a property of model-building games and an integral part of Peirce's method. Cooperative model-building resorts to the same theoretical construct as the strictly competitive semantic games do. The two kinds of games, the semantic and the model-construction games, are two sides of the same conceptual coin. General principles governing mathematical practices are related to model-building activities.
